Health & Safety
At Pike Industries we go to great lengths to keep our employees, customers, subcontractors, vendors, the general public, and our natural environment safe. To ensure their safety, we maintain a full-time staff of Environmental, Health and Safety professionals who are focused on promoting and maintaining our culture of “zero incidents”.
Job-site health and safety inspections are conducted on a regular basis. Our employees also receive progressive safety training in Risk Assessment so they are able to recognize and eliminate hazardous conditions. The company provides employees with the proper tools and equipment to perform their jobs safely. Industrial hygiene testing is conducted at our operations to ensure that employees are not overexposed to hazardous environments such as noise, chemicals, fumes, dust, etc. Pike is frequently recognized by industry organizations for outstanding safety performance and we are considered to be the leader in safety by our industry peers.
Along with our commitment to keeping our employees, customers, subcontractors, and the public safe, Pike takes proactive steps to ensure that our operations are carried out in an environmentally friendly manner to minimize impact on the environment. Approximately 17% of our Hot Mix Asphalt feedstock consists of recycled materials. We have worked jointly with educational institutions and state agencies to develop environmentally friendly products that help with stormwater management and other products that reduce energy consumption at the point of manufacture. Our aggregate washing facilities have constructed water recycling systems that allow us to re-use almost 100% of our water needs. We routinely utilize control devices at our facilities and construction projects to eliminate sedimentation from entering surface water bodies.
In addition, Pike has donated hundreds of acres of property to municipalities and land trusts in the interest of conserving precious land resources. Pike has been recognized by Industry Organizations and Regulatory Agencies for our efforts to protect the environment and preserve our natural resources.
